Spain-based Air Europa announced February 10 that it’s expanding its Medellin-Madrid-Medellin nonstop service to four times per week (up from three currently) starting in April 2020.

“This new operation, which responds to the good [market-demand] behavior shown by the route since its launch [last June], will mean an average increase of 30.7% in the number of seats,” according to the company.

The Medellin-Madrid-Medellin service attracted 44,000 passengers last year, with plane occupancy rates “close to 90%,” according to the company, a division of the Globalia tourism conglomerate.

The expansion means that Air Europa nonstop service on Boeing 787-8 “Dreamliners” will include Fridays in addition to Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

The new-generation, fuel-efficient planes carry 274 passengers in economy class and 22 in business, “generating less [greenhouse gas] emissions than any other aircraft of similar size,” according to Air Europa.

Via its hub operations in Madrid, “Air Europa will consolidate other destinations on its international map with an increase in frequencies and the progressive arrival of the new Boeing 787-9” aircraft, according to the company.

“The Air Europa fleet is one of the most modern on the [European] continent. It consists of more than 50 aircraft whose average age does not exceed four years,” according to the company.

Air Europa is a member of the SkyTeam alliance, formed by 19 airlines that collectively transport more than 630 million passengers annually through 15,400 daily flights to more than 1,000 destinations in more than 170 countries.
